    Wondering if anyone else has applied this year? Have people heard back? I've got an interview, which I'm really happy about because I didn't think I'd hear back at all, but I'm very nervous because I always seem to trip and fall at the final hurdle.

    Thank you! I was never expecting it so I'm pleased to have got through to this round if I don't get through to the next! From reading online, you make the initial application, then there's a video interview if your application is approved, and then there's an assessment day if your interview is approved. Have you applied?

    Mine took me much longer than expected as well! It was ok, the questions were not at all what I was expecting. I'm worried my answers weren't great and that my concept for the second question wasn't very good Also, I had a problem with the second video uploading which was a nightmare, I had to email them and everything. How about you?

    Neither was I! I spoke to a sixth form tutor about it and we went over like answers for questions on teamwork and communication and stuff, so not what I was expecting, but I enjoyed answering them more! I don't think I answered them very well either, but I'm sure you did better than you thought Have you heard back yet? I'm worried the people who've got through have, and I've been rejected...

    I came up with an idea for a teen/YA drama, it was a bit wacky but hopefully they liked it? I'm worried it wasn't what they were looking for at all How about you?

    My idea was for a sci-fi, dystopian drama (focused on a society where using technology to alter/enhance your body is normal and basically all the issues that arise).

    That sounds really cool! I bet it went great

    Has anyone heard back yet? Starting to think I've not been successful...

    Hey,

    I applied for the journalism one which closed at the same time as yours, I was so surprised when I got asked to do a video interview! However, I was only asked one question(I'm guessing because the apprenticeships are different that's why).

    I did mine just over a week ago and I haven't heard back yet!

    GOOD LUCK!!

    Yes. There were around 5 assessment days across the country with around 10-12 people selected for each day. After the assessment day there is a final round of interviews.

    I was at the birmingham assessment day. I got a email about 2 weeks ago saying i would get a phone call from the assessment team and that was infact a phone interview. From there they invited me to choose one of the assessment days.

    Was this definitely for the same scheme as us (production apprenticeship rather than trainee) because the website said the assessment would probably be in June...
